Dwayne Johnson Introduces the Skipper Frank Trailer for Jungle Cruise
Disney has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming Jungle Cruise. This time, the video offers a closer look at Dwayne Johnson’s character, Frank Wolff. It explains how Frank ends up taking on the adventure of a lifetime, and it’s because he is in enormous debt. But all the money in the world can’t prepare the riverboat captain for the supernatural perils he will face to help Emily Blunt’s Dr. Lily Houghton. The trailer also reveals closer ties to the Disneyland ride than before.

Jaume Collet-Serra directed the movie from a story by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Ficarra and Requa also wrote the screenplay together with Michael Green. The official synopsis reads:
“Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, Disney’s Jungle Cruise is an adventure-filled, rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.”
Disney’s Jungle Cruise will hit theaters and Disney+’s Premier Access on July 30.
